    I don't own the card. Just saw a listing on ebay.

    Almost certainly a serial network card (<3 Mbps). Recall that early Novell cards used RS422 serial.

The board/assembly number on the top edge will tell you which revision, I believe the two most popular ones are on TH99. You can find a webified version from stason.org.
    OK, do you know where one could find the manual or at least the jumper settings for this card?

    I googled "NE2000 jumpers" and the first link was this: https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=1200390
    But probably what you want is actually this: https://stason.org/TULARC/pc/network...0-149-00X.html

    That should contain everything you need to know.

    Yours seems to be set to 0x300 address, and IRQ 5, which is pretty normal.
    I tend to prefer IRQ2 (which gets redirected to IRQ9), because IRQ5 often gets used either by sound cards (I set mine to 5, so I can keep 7 for printing) or XT hard drive controllers (if used)

    That's very excellent! Thank you, sir.
